‘Queen Primer’ among LGBT books Reps want to ban

The House of Representatives has resolved to mandate the ban of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) materials from all schools.

The lawmakers are also planning to ban the importation and local production of the materials in federal, state and local governments.

The resolution follows the adoption of a motion moved by Sulaiman Abubakar Gumi, a member representing Gummi/Bukkuyum Federal Constituency of Zamfara State during plenary on Thursday.

In his lead debate, Gumi expressed concern over the influx of foreign educational materials introduced in nursery and primary schools in Nigeria which tend to teach and promote certain morals that are alien and inimical to Nigeria’s cherished norms and values.
